Can a medium creature stand in the middle of 10′ hallway?

Playing on a grid, imagine a 10′ hallway. Can a medium creature stand between the grid squares, effectively leaving 2½’ on each side? Or does the creature have to "hug the wall" and leave full 5′ on one side?

Reference link to basic rules.

I’m asking this for two reasons:

  • mundane "block the corridor by standing in the middle" situation (would seem to block it for mediums, and force small creatures to squeeze, ie. use extra movement).
  • blocking the corridor from a frightened creature already standing next to you (if there’s a 5′ gap, they can circle you, but squeezing through 2½’ gap next to the very creature they fear, that seems a stretch…).

Can you stand up from prone while stunned?

If you are Stunned, your movement isn’t reduced to 0 (unlike grappled.) Can you stand up from prone while Stunned? Can you also drop prone from standing?


  • A stunned creature is incapacitated (see the condition), can’t move, and can speak only falteringly.
  • The creature automatically fails Strength and Dexterity Saving Throws.
  • Attack rolls against the creature have advantage.

How about with Paralysed? (Identical, except with the additional clause:

  • Any Attack that hits the creature is a critical hit if the attacker is within 5 feet of the creature.

In other questions, the bonus damage on Booming Blade on movement doesn’t occur on a target standing up from prone, which suggests that standing doesn’t count as moving. See Does standing up from prone trigger the secondary damage from the Booming Blade cantrip?

Where do the Bête stand on LGBT issues?

In a recent Werewolf session, our GM had us meet an informant in a gay club, and it raised an issue we never really explored before in this game. Our group of players is composed of people close to the LGBT movement, so it was possibly a little catering, but it made us consider where our characters stand on LGBT topics.

While each player has the rights to dictate where their specific character stands on the topic, it also raised the question of where the Tribes and Fera stand on the topic. That’s one we couldn’t decide, and that’s the focus of this question.

Of course, each of the Tribes is different, all of them have their flavor, and the Fera differ quite a lot from that too, which makes this quite a large mass of books to sift through.

Where do the Tribebooks/Breedbooks1 address LGBT topics, and what is the general standing that can be condensed from these texts? Please provide page numbers for reference. Books from any edition that can provide information are welcome.

Please note I’m not looking for personal interpretations of what you think the Tribes and Fera stances would be, and I’m especially not looking for people’s personal stance. The question is only what the books describe as the stances of the various groups.

1 – as it came up: Any WtA source is allowable, including the MET variants. I phrased it like this, as these two type of books are the two most logical starting points for this quest. The various Player Guides might also be an excellent source.

Can a ranged rogue effectively stand back and sneak attack opponents every turn with a ranged weapon while their allies fight on the front line?

Rogues can use ranged weapons to make sneak attacks. Also, the rogue rules state that:

You don’t need advantage on the attack roll if another enemy of the target is within 5 feet of it, that enemy isn’t incapacitated, and you don’t have disadvantage on the attack roll.

Does this mean that basically a ranged rogue can stand back and sneak attack opponents every turn as his buddies are fighting with them on the front line? Did I miss some rule about shooting into melee or does that sound pretty mighty?

Can you stand from prone if your speed is 5 and you have no movement remaining?

This is inspired by the following question:

  • How much movement would a wood elf have left if they needed to spend half their movement standing up?

The answers there state that, assuming we are on a grid, if you have 35 speed and you are prone it takes 15 movement to stand up. Similarly then, if your speed was 15 it would take 5 movement. But what about when your speed is 5; does it require 0 movement? The section on being prone states:

[…] You can’t stand up if you don’t have enough movement left or if your speed is 0.

Here our speed is not 0 and we do have enough movement left (0 movement). I’m just wondering if there’s a rule I’ve missed somewhere or is it in fact possible for a creature to stand from prone while having 0 movement, given that their speed has been reduced to 5?

If I used Wish to become immune to being seen via Truesight and stand in an area of magical darkness, can a creature with Truesight see me?

As the title says, does standing inside an area of magical darkness, while being immune from detection through truesight (not the spell, but the monster ability), render me unseen from a creature that has truesight?

On the one hand, the answer might be yes. I am undetectable by truesight now, and truesight is what is enabling the creature to see me.

On the other hand, the answer might be no. Truesight allows the creature to see through the magical darkness and I am not actually invisible.

Which is the answer that has more adherence to the rules as written? Or is this a gray area in the rules?

What does “CMV” in “CMV hypothesis” stand for?

While reading some of the archives of the Mimir.Net mailing list I encountered the “CMV Hypothesis”. In short, it says:

Under the CMV hypothesis, Eladrin, Guardinals, Asuras, and Aasimar are all one race; Aasimon and Archons are not. [Galen, 1999 archive part 3]

After reading several posts about this hypothesis, I still can’t figure out what ‘CMV’ is supposed to stand for. Web searching is confounded by a biology hypothesis of the same name.

So what does the “CMV” in “CMV hypothesis” stand for?

Why stand on a mount?

Epic Ride checks confer the ability to stand on a mount. What mechanical benefit does this confer? The only description given in the SRD is:

“This allows the character to stand on his or her mount’s back even during movement or combat. The character takes no penalties to actions while doing so.”

but I am unaware of anything that is actually gained from doing this. Is this a blunder? A recent and related answer from KRyan found nothing.
